A Judge has taken the unusual step of releasing the names and photographs of four children who went missing with their mother Jennifer Jones after a court ordered that they should be returned to the care of their father who lives in Spain. Miss Jones was ordered to return the children by midnight on Friday 12th October but failed to do so. Earlier that day the Court had ordered theat the children should be removed from their mother’s home and placed in foster care as he feared she may abscond with them. However, when the police attended to remove the children they were not there. All four children and their mother have now been found safe and well.
The fact that the court released the names of the children and photographs of them is unusual as court proceedings concerning children are usually held in private to protect the children involved.
